REMINDER: Volunteers are bing asked to show up and help ‘Clean Up Burien’ this Saturday, March 18, from 9 – 11 a.m.

Volunteers are needed to help clean up the city, and are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at Town Square Park near City Hall, located at SW 152nd Street and 5th Place SW.

“I am hoping to make this a monthly, or at the very least, a bi-monthly event,” Organizer Christine Lopez told The B-Town Blog. “I was reading so many Facebook posts from people complaining about the problems in our town, everyone wanting ‘they’ or ‘them’ to fix things and really ‘we’ can all pitch in and do something, even if it is as simple as picking up the trash.”

Christine adds:

Picking up trash is one small thing we can all do to help our community, all it costs is your time. We’ll be meeting at Town Square Park, this will also be our starting point. Garbage bags, rubber gloves and some trash pickers will be available (If you want a trash picker of your own, the dollar store has them). Please feel free to bring your own supplies as well.

Since we will be picking up trash you need to be aware there are dangers of sharp objects, i.e. glass, needles, etc. Containers will be provider for disposal of any sharp objects you may find. If you are bringing your children, please make sure you supervise them.

The event will happen rain or shine.

For more information, contact Christine at [email protected].

NOTE: This new event is not affiliated with Discover Burien’s “Clean Sweep,” which is usually held on/around Earth Day, which this year falls on Saturday, April 22.

    Thanks Christine for being proactive. To bad we are cleaning up after the homeless population that was pushed out of Seattle. I remember the last decade Seattle moved their homeless population to White Center. Now Seattle is pushing their homeless population to Burien!!

    Thanks but no thanks Seattle!!

      Thanks Christine for organizing. We had a good turnout considering the rain. Lots of litter on 151st St between 1st & 4th Ave SW. (Especially between Odd Lots back entrance and Toyota Overflow Lot. Couldn’t pick up the mattress:-) Can the city?
